Justin Bonsignore Keeps His Dominant Roll Going at Thompson

THOMPSON, Conn. —  Justin Bonsignore seems to have mastered Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park.

The Holtsville, New York, veteran pulled into NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour Victory Lane for the fifth time in 2018 on Wednesday night as part of the Bud “King of Beers” 150.

The victory was the fifth of the season for Bonsignore, his 17th of his Whelen Modified Tour career and his eighth at Thompson. He has now been in Victory Lane for all three stops at the 0.625-mile oval.

“I just can't believe the season we are having,” Bonsignore said. “We just have to keep it going. Ryan Stone brought a great LFR car here. We have a long way to go, but hopefully we can just keep winning races.” more info...

Doug Coby Finds His Way Back To Victory Lane at Stafford

8/3/18 - STAFFORD, Conn. - Doug Coby was not going to be denied on Friday night at Stafford Motor Speedway.

The five-time and defending NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion was sliding through the grass early on, and had to pass more than a handful of cars in his efforts to charge back to the front of the field.

However, when it mattered most, the Milford, Connecticut, pulled back into Victory Lane for the first time in nearly one year.

The victory in the Starrett 150 was the first of the season for Coby, his 24th career in Whelen Modified Tour competition and the 11th of his career at the historic Stafford half-mile.

“It's been a long time coming,” Coby said. “We didn't win at Stafford at all last year, and it seemed to be a place we were always good at. When I have a good car here, I like to try and defend my home-turf. This is great for our team. We are excited to be back in Victory Lane.”     more
